Hardware Cache Switching with Operating System Context Switches

Description

An operating system performs a context switch when it suspends one kernel-level thread and activates a different thread. Typically, data stored in the cache memory are lost in such events. This project aims to explore the advantages of maintaining multiple small ‘cache-storage-cores’ and switching to the appropriate one during a context switch. We will use a RISC-V CPU with a suitable embedded operating system and a custom-built cache for the FPGA-based experiments
